No video captured. But here’s some science. My top set of squats yesterday felt like death. The shit felt heavy even though I’ve had that weight on my back before. I wasn’t missing a rep. Something deep within me kicked in especially during that 5th and last rep for 205lbs/92kg even when I literally got stuck coming up. I wasn’t fucking bailing though....and I ground my way all the way up. #tootoughtokill#girlswholift#powerlifting#training#kratospowerlifting#chickswholift

My Newf fitness bag came in this week and I have to say I'm blown away by the quality. Tough fabric and heavy stitching that rivals my military issue gear. Havent had the opportunity to work out with it yet, but its packed up with my gear to visit some friends out of town, and just maybe find time to sneak in some work. Thrilled @newf_fitness ask me to be a part of the family and proud to represent quality products.
Pay no attention to the 9x trifecta hanging in the background.
Alright its been right at 90 days since I started using @nutribeet and i promised to report. On the actual effectiveness.
I figure pictures and graphs can show you way better than i can explain.
VO2MAX has increased from 50 to 53 which is a ridiculous jump in 90 days. And apparently my recovery has improved because im able to achieve negative splits on a 2 beast weekend. ( or back to back half marathons in mud for my non OCR followers)
Getting ready for the Dallas Ultra, I decided ot would be a good idea to run a beast and sprint the same day with only a short pause between. Little did i know Lebec was going to be a seriously hard course. @nutribeet gave me that extra boost of energy and mental clarity to go back out for another race, finishing both pretty strong. And! Picked up my 6x this weekend , 4 to go.

I am happy to say @rawnutritionlabs invited me to be an ambassador for their product @nutribeet. I was skeptical at first honestly, I get a lot of these. Turns out all they want is for me to try their product and be honest about what I think. Novel concept right? No buy in fee or measly % off. Nope here take this and tell us if you like it. Can do. Ill report back on effects in a few days. I can tell you a couple of cool things after my 1st try.
1) whoever came up with the funnel scoop is a genius.
2) I am a big believer in beet root powder. I tried another big brand, the one the Elites use, it was disgusting. This was a lot smoother, it is beets so guess what, kinda taste like beets.
The pineapple addition really cuts the bitter though. Anyway into the gym to test it out. @nutribeet#nutribeetambassador#poweredbynutribeet#ocrtraining#tootoughtokill#sorrylongpost

Going into the biggest race so far this year, I looked back to last year for a little motivation. My very first and still longest beast. Still rehabbing an ITB injury, 20lbs heavier than currently, and under trained for the task ahead. I manged to cross the finish line, exhausted and in pain. Looking back i probably shouldnt have kept running on that knee, but quitting just isnt in me.
This year, thank god, my knees are feeling good and I feel as prepared as I can be. Hopefully that translates into a very strong finish, most importantly though is to stay injury.
Probably my one and only Transformation Thursday. 2012ish-present. Roughly 230 @34%+ bodyfat to [email protected] 12% bf. Lots of ups and downs between.
Everyones fitness goals and journey is a unique and very personal road. Never let others opinions of fir determine what your goals are. Lean, athletic, muscular and anything else in between. Train for healthy, train for functional, above all train to be happy with yourself.
